Transfers: Marin leaves Chelsea, Blind open to United move
Chelsea are set to send flop Marko Marin to Fiorentina on a season-long loan.
The German winger has barely played for Chelsea since moving from Werder Bremen in 2012, featuring in just six games.
After spending last season on loan at Sevilla where he won the Europa League, Marin is set for another temporary switch after Fiorentina's official Twitter account confirmed that he was having a medical.
And Marko looks like he's enjoying it.
Ajax World Cup star Daley Blind has opened the door to a move to Manchester United.
The Dutchman was one of Holland's many players who impressed at the World Cup in Brazil under Louis van Gaal, who is now the manager of the Old Trafford outfit.
While he is happy to stay in the Eredivisie, the 24-year-old will not say no to an opportunity at linking up with van Gaal once again should a big money offer come in.
Blind said: "I am happy here in Amsterdam, but if there comes another club I will have to think about it and then we will see.
"I will think about my options. For now I will focus on Ajax and we will see what happens next week."
